Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Moving Day
Review by Emiline
Allie is a girl with a lot of rules. Lots of her rules are about friendship—like her Don’t Shove a Spatula Down Your Best Friend’s Throat rule. Some aren’t friendship rules—like the Never Eat Anything Red rule. (That’s one of my favorites.)
Allie’s story starts out when she shoves a spatula down her best friend’s throat. And if you think that’s bad, then wait, it gets much worse. When Allie gets home from her best friend’s house, a.k.a Mary Kay, she finds out she is moving and she’ll have to give up her rock collection.
Later that night, Allie and her family go to visit their new house. Allie kept whining because she didn’t want to move into the new house. But Allie stopped whining when her mom said that if she moved into the house without whining she could get a new kitten. Allie agreed with that . . . until she saw the house. She thought it was haunted.
When they arrived her mom also said that Allie would have to attend a new school. Will Allie be able to change her parent’s minds? Or will she have to make a Never Move Into a Haunted House Rule? Find out in Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls: Moving Day.
Why I liked it: Allie likes rules. That means she will follow them. Allie has a lot in common with me because she also follows rules and is witty—just like me. Plus, she has blonde hair, too. Allie is cool to me because she collects geodes. They look like rocks on the outside, but on the inside, Geodes look like sparkly diamonds. I recommend the Allie Finkle books to people who are crazy about rules.
